“I want to personally thank Larry for his near decade of commitment to this organization,” Brian
Cashman said in a statement. “Larry cares deeply about his craft, and the pitchers under his tutelage, and he played a significant role in our success over the past nine seasons.”

Going into the 2020 season, Cashman will have to look for a replacement for Rothschild to work alongside Aaron Boone with the Yankees’ pitching staff. Possible candidates discussed by Yankees color commentators include the likes of David Cone, Brent Strom currently of the Houston Astros and Yankees’ pitch development manager Desi Druschel but according to Joel Sherman there is no front runner. 

Rumors of Rothschild’s next stop include joining former Yankees' skipper Joe Girardi in Philadelphia next year.
